The UFC has been to Chicago each of the past two years for Fox events held one week before the Super Bowl, and this year is no exception. UFC on Fox 10 does not have a title fight compared to the last 5 cards, but the main event is still very important in the grand scheme of the lightweight top tier. Recently dethroned champion Ben Henderson returns to the cage after losing his title to Anthony Pettis, and he'll go up against Josh Thomson in the five-round headliner.
Gabriel Gonzaga meets Stipe Miocic in the co-main event, Donald Cerrone battles Adriano Martins, and Jeremy Stephens looks to improve to 3-0 at featherweight against Darren Elkins. It's not one of the strongest Fox main cards, but it should provide us plenty of good action.
The best prelim features Sergio Pettis against Alex Caceres, but keep an eye out for Eddie Wineland versus Yves Jabouin, both for the fact that it should be an exciting fight and for the 27 different ways Jabouin's surname will be pronounced by Rogan and Goldberg.
